We are involved in a number of partnerships, advocating and innovating in order to improve housing for all LGBTQ+ people.

The National LGB&T Partnership was established in early 2010, in order reduce health inequalities and challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia within public services as part of the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Health and Wellbeing Alliance.
As of January 2017, the Partnership combines the expertise of eleven key LGB&T organisations across England and is led by LGBT Foundation. For more information, please visit the National LGB&T Partnership and the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Health and Wellbeing Alliance.
